Join Planting Justice, West Oakland Youth Standing Empowered, and the after-school gardening class at Explore College Preparatory Middle School for a day of urban gardening and permaculture. We will be transforming a grassy slope into a perennial food forest. The day will involve mulching fruit trees, planting winter cover crop, and sowing wildflower seeds.
We also will be giving away a bunch of donated vegetable plants, courtesy of Planting Justice and Janelle Orsi, author of The Sharing Solution.
